The house of Beaumont des Crayères was founded in 1955 by a group of grape growers whose shared passion resulted in them pooling their resources together and establishing a world class Champagne brand. Beaumont is based in Epernay and derives its name from `nice or cute hill` in reference to the hill of Beaumont directly behind the winery. Because the grape growers of Beaumont are also its owners they have total control over the quality and supply of their grapes, which ensures consistency of quality other Champagne houses can only dream of. Their grape pressing centre is one of the most technologically advanced in Champagne, ensuring high quality is maintained. The Grande Reserve is their flagship cuvee and its high percentage of Pinot Meunier at around 60 % in the final blend gives the champagne its fruit driven character and softness which is much admired.
Grande Reserve is typically made from a blend of 60% Pinot Meunier grapes, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir. The wine has 40% reserve wine added to the final assemblage and is aged for close to 2 years on its lees before being disgorged. The dosage rate is 10grams per litre.
Based in Epernay and founded in 1955, Beaumont des Crayères is a small champagne house with around 80 hectares under vine. The style of this champagne house is to consistently produce elegant, very well made champagnes which are rounded in character, helped by a high percentage of Pinot Meunier in the blend and good bottle ageing. In 1955, a group of wine growers from the village of Mardeuil, a small village on the hillsides of Epernay, joined forces to set up a Champagne House. Presses and cellars were inaugurated for the first harvest in 1958. The name of one of the finest hillsides in Mardeuil, Beaumont des Crayères, was chosen as the name of the brand out of pride in the quality of the vineyard, Beaumont means `lovely hill`. The rose found at the centre of their coat of arms symbolises their attachment to the vines and the fine qualities of their terroirs. Thanks to the quality of its champagnes, the brand soon established itself in the export market, selling to numerous countries around the world.
